Newcomer Madacy Entertainment has announced a May Blu-ray arrival for the extreme sports series 'Epic Conditions.'

Thanks to a scoop by our friends over at TV Shows on DVD, Madacy will mark their entrance to high-def with 'Epic Conditions' on May 13. The release is also one of the rare Blu-ray titles to hit stores well ahead of the standard DVD edition (which won't arrive until August).

Billed as " action-filled series featuring talented athletes testing their skills in ideal weather conditions for their sports," all 15 episodes of 'Epic Conditions' will be spread across two BD-50 dual-layer discs. (Final tech specs have not yet been announced.)

Despite packing in 575 minutes of high-def content, Madacy will also include ten bonus episodes of the Weather Channel series "Weather Ventures" (presented in standard-def).

The suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.98.
